Dual authors pen 

fascinating reads


Books written by two people aren’t always good reads if the authors and their writing styles don’t mesh well.  Here are two suggested reads that were recommended by several sources.


Risking all for a Dream


Around the Block

I’m turning 49 in April, and I’ve been reflecting on the decade of my 40s lately. I don’t think I ever had a mid-life crisis; rather, I emerged from a crisis-laden time to end up in a pretty good place. I can honestly say the ages 40 through 49 felt like I lived my whole life over again.

Starting Sweet Potato Slips

“My dream is to become a farmer. Just a Bohemian guy

pulling up his own sweet potatoes for dinner.”

Snow Days


There is a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip in which a little boy and his tiger stand outside, gazing up at the night sky.  

“If people sat outside and looked up at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently,” Calvin says.

“How so?” asks the tiger.

Is a gorilla who knows sign language a person? 

Is a synthetic life form with complex and deep ideas about right and wrong a person?

Is a human being in a permanent vegetative state a person?
